I'm writing this because you begged. You know how I love the begging. In fact, you probably know too many things and know them far too well. Who am I? Well, that's what I'm trying to figure out. I was a whore in my youth, a killer since my adolescence, and a monster as a man. I am the man who kidnapped Livvie. I am the man who held her in a dark room for weeks. But, most i ...more

For those of you who pre-ordered and are getting your copies downloaded now, the WRONG VERSION of the book was sent out!!!

If your version does not have 15 Chapters + an epilogue, PLEASE DO NOT READ IT and a corrected version will be out soon!!

The Dark Duet series is one of the most messed up, dark, twisted, excrutiating, emotional series I've ever read. It's also one of the BEST series I've ever read. So, when I heard there was going to be an epilogue, I knew it was going to be EPIC. And well, that's exac

Quick read but a goodread! The captor of our hearts Caleb, takes us on a journey of how he and Livvie learn to move forward after going through hell and back. Caleb finds himself asking "Who am I" at the age of 27, an age when most have figured such a thing out. Yet in a sense he is just beginning.

I can’t even remember the number of times I’ve said The Dark Duet is one of my all time fave series and I’ll keep recommending this series to everyone but in all fairness, this book was not as good as Seduced in the Dark. Then I have to give credit to C.J. because she had a difficult job to do.

One of my all time favorite series comes to a close and it could not have gone out better than this. Epilogue lived up to every one of my expectations.

Epilogue starts off with Caleb deciding to give us his side of the story.. what happened after we left off in The Dark Duet.

Thank you for the ride C. J. Roberts, I enjoyed every single word of it.

First let me say... I LOVED the Dark Duet! I found this series because it was often compared to mine. As C.J. has stated - a VERY unfair comparison. The Dark Duet and Epilogue are erotic, mine are not. But - we do have a kind of "mind-fuck" in common. Now, with that said... I LOVED the angst produced in the Dark Duet! I couldn't sleep, I HAD to know what would happen next.

Epilogue is just what it promised to be - Caleb's POV AFTER (thus the title) the end of Seduced in the Dark. I knew the endin

*3 So-So Stars*

This story is written entirely from Caleb's emotional perspective. As the title suggests, this is not a re-telling of the first two stories, but a conclusion that offers sporadic flashbacks into Caleb's dark past. While I didn't necessarily dislike this addition, I found it extremely inconsistent with the overall tone of the story.

Epilogue opens with Caleb inviting us into his world—generously letting us step into his twisted and tortured mind. He speaks directly to the reader i

Awwww. Sniff.sniff.... I loved hearing Caleb's voice and his POV was so heartbreaking. Dear lawd, my heart broke for this man, who had to have had the worst childhood ever. My poor heart...sniff.

I loved him and Livvie together, both navigating the tenuous link that binds them even though their journey started from a dark and evil path. I loved how he found her and how Livvie forgave him and accepted him back. It was so sweet..sniff...sniff, and Caleb was so funny. This was a perfect conclusion

“If you're sighing with contentment, you're either one sick fuck or you don't grasp the seriousness of the situation. While I no longer kill, I am a killer. A killer in love is a very dangerous thing.”


Epilogue is told from Caleb's point of view, which was a total treat. I loved knowing what was going on inside his head. Caleb has been looking for Sophie and it has taken a lot of work to find her. She didn't make it easy. She was once his captive, but he made the mistake of falling in love wit

The sex was...Hot. Hot. Hot.

Post-trauma Livvie and Caleb as a couple outside of the bedroom, however...

There's something about seeing the "after" that tends to mess with the entire experience. Sometimes I'd rather be left on my own to imagine what happens next. Watching people in a domesticated setting kills some of the mystery. Example : Any Fever series fans remember the travesty that was Barrons (view spoiler)?

But I was curious enough to read this and it was still hot

Do not read this review if you haven’t read the previous books :)

It's really sad when a story ends. This journey had its ups and downs but I never thought that it would end in this way .I'm really glad I read these books because characters as Livvie should be mimicked. What I mean is that even though she was manipulated so badly she managed to stay strong on her feet again. It was difficult to forget him , to erase her past but what about Caleb? This book has all the answers about these two

I am SO disappointed with this book. "Epilogue" was something I never thought could be possible with this series...



Honestly, if I wanted some BDSM light with no plot I would read Fifty Shades of Grey. When I open a book by C.J. Roberts, I expect dark twisted romance, kinky sex, and angst to the highest degree. I don't want to read pages and pages of dull dinner parties and playing Guitar Hero (or Rock Band

In Epilogue, we continue Caleb's and Livvie's story. This time though it is told completely from Caleb's POV. I didn't think it was possible to love Caleb any more than I did already but I do. To read his struggle to overcome the past and to try to make sense of who he is today-is he Caleb or James? I loved reading their process of self growth and forgiveness.

This story is witty, sexy <---BOY IS IT SEXY..Hmm...(view spoiler)
Shannon The Show Stopper
I was never able to be fully drawn into this book like I was the first two. As much as I wanted Caleb and Livvie to move past their experience and integrate into society, I'm not sure I actually wanted to watch it happen. I loved Seduce in the Dark so much and I think it was truly the masterpiece of the series. So of course since I loved the characters so much, I wanted more. Now that I got what I thought I wanted, I'm not so sure.

Here's an example of why this book was just 'off' for me.

Is this fifteen chapter book worth the purchase and read? ABSOLUTELY!

Epilogue is told completely in Caleb/James pov which was...sarcastic/witty, heartbreaking, heart-warming and sexy. Caleb takes a reader through his two sides…Caleb and James and how he now is the combination of both men.

"3 sexy stars"

Anything to do with Livvie, Caleb and C J Roberts I absolutely love and Epilogue was no exception. Yes! I realize I rated it ‘3 stars’ not because I hated it or it was boring but the author is to blame here, Yes Mrs Roberts I blame you if my future dark/angst/romance reads fall short because you have created one of the best scintillating story of love, betrayal, faith and survival in ‘Seduced in the Dark’ which will forever be my top favorite.

Who am I?
Am I Caleb?
Am I James?

I’ve often asked myself this very thing and have always come up with a different answer. Perhaps the only answer that can be truthful is to say, “I am both.”

Such was the beginning of Epilogue and with these words I was drawn back into the Dark Duet series. Those words crushed me for the man who was, and is, Caleb/James.

Being up close and personal with Caleb felt……. intimate. I experienced a connection and a love for Caleb the like in which I never have before – it
“Well, first, I want to say I’m thankful for the food. I can’t wait to eat it. But, more importantly…I’m thankful that I’m here at all.”

And frankly that I would never be able to understand. So when I saw the above quote, my heart broke for her. She's not even 20 years old, for God's sake, and makes stateme

I fell in love with Caleb all over again in this book. Or maybe I should say that I fell in love with the new part of Caleb...the man named James. I thought it was great how Caleb became a new version of himself; but still had the old one tucked away inside and ready to come out and play when he was allowed.
